Terry was a blessing to all those who knew him. I first met him at one of the University of Alabama football games. What an amazing fan he was. My wife and I would always see Terry and Kay sitting up front at the First Baptist Tuscaloosa. A great man of God who was loved by all. Can you imagine the joy he experienced when he closed his eyes on this side and opened them in the presence of our Almighty King? Heaven is rejoicing this day for another follower of Christ. May the peace and grace of Christ be with Kay and family as they hold onto the precious memories Terry brought to so many. May the favor of Christ fall upon them during this Celebration of Life.

Terry was a dear friend. His death is a terrible loss to so many of us who loved him so much. He will be missed incredibly. I am attaching a photo taken the last time I had the pleasure of being with him. His family has my deepest sympathy.
